A good tribute to our vets…
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13
While the millionaire professional football players are protesting and disrespecting our veterans, we are continually honoring them. Veterans Day is an important day to remember and pay respect to our heroes past and present. Because of the Veterans we are allowed to express our opinions and even openly practice our faith in Jesus Christ
One Veteran I will always remember is my father, who did three tours in Vietnam for our freedom. Because of him and other heroes like him, we are able to grow up and live in the greatest country in the world. Christians should be very grateful for our Veterans, without them we might not even have Churches, like other countries where Christians are being persecuted and even killed.
When I think of the word Veteran, I think of the…

Great post on the regathering of the People of the Book by my friend Wally Fry.
In A.D 70 the Roman armies overran and destroyed the city of Jerusalem, and the Jewish people were scattered throughout the world and were for some 1900 years. This prophecy addressed a real, physical scattering of God’s chosen. The fulfillment of this prophecy therefore had to include a real, physical gathering together again of God’s chosen. On May 14, 1948 a huge piece of many prophecies concerning the gathering of God’s chosen people was fulfilled when the nation of Israel was once again in existence on this Earth.
What does this mean to us today? It means, simply, that God’s promises never fail. While it may seem sometime as if God has forgotten us today, this is simply not true. The Jewish people waited almost 1900 hundred years for God to gather them back to The Promised land. During this time they endured affliction and persecution on a…

A great little reminder to be still and know that He is there…
Most people would agree that listening is an important skill; most of us aren’t all that good at it. It’s hard to communicate when all of the communication goes only one way!
I’m not talking about listening to other people, however; I’m talking about communicating with God.
To be entirely accurate, most of us don’t spend much time in prayer talking to God… we’re busy people after all. For those who do take the time to speak with God, do we ever give Him a chance to contribute to the communication?
You know, there is that “still small voice” people sometimes talk about; can you ever hear it?
Boy, it sure is tough to hear if we’re always doing the talking! Maybe there are times when we are with God that we should just be still for a while and see what happens… Can we spare the time?
Great reminder on Christmas Eve…
Every Christmas Eve, my dad read us the Christmas story, Luke chapters 1 and 2, from the big golden family Bible in the original King James. I still hear his voice…I still hear the words.
Here, though, are 20 of my favorite Christmas Bible verses from the Old and New Testaments, reminding us of the Savior, the season, the gift…
Isaiah 7:14 NIV
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
Isaiah 9:2 ESV
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shone.
Isaiah 9:6-7 NIV
For to us a child is…

This is a great idea…
This year I’m not asking for much, so if you are looking for gift ideas there’s one thing you could do for me than I’m sure every other blogger would also appreciate…
Share a favorite post with others on your blog and/or social media! It cost’s nothing, and all you’d need to do is wrap it in syrupilly-sweet words of praise as you ask others to check out the post of the year…or at least one of your favorites 😉
So, this is the challenge AND the request:
Share (a post), and share a “like.”
This is time of year when many bloggers see lower-than-normal visits to their sites. Why not take just a moment and share some posts you’ve liked with others? By doing so you will help some blogs keep up their views (“hits”) and maybe even gain a few new followers.
